International Arbitration for the In-House Lawyer: Trends and Best-Practices

Norwegian companies find themselves increasingly involved in international dispute resolution and in-house lawyers are more often than ever being called upon to manage and direct international arbitrations. In-house lawyers must collaborate with the law firms representing them to develop arbitral strategies, maximize cost efficiency and provide critical evidentiary support.
